Chillingo Releases Four Hot Summer Games

Posted by Lisa Caplan on July 26th, 2011

It's becoming a habit to see which new games powerhouse Chillingo will serve up each Thursday. They seem to be entering every genre. This week they have a casual universal title, racing themed, but standard fare. But they also launched a free game souped up with in-app purchases, a serious tower defence-shooter title and something we haven't seen from Chilingo before - time management.

Dream Track Nation

This game has players racing on fun, sometimes downright silly tracks jumping over obstacles and getting power-ups, while collecting up to three stars in the usual progression formula. There are 20 tracks set in Texas, Alaska and New York. The game is physics based, and the type of great casual game one expects from Chillingo. Dream Track Nation has a level editor to add an extra dimension to the game, and uses both Game Center and Crystal Network for multiplayer action locally and online. Chilingo calls the design "patchwork quilt" style - it looks hot.

One Man Army

One Man Army is a more serious game. It's a tower defense title in which Earth is a desolate planet under threat of mutant invasion. Players mix shooter elements with classic tower defense gaming. There are six zones to defend with a total of thirty-six levels in all with high-end graphics meant for retina displays.

Monster Mayhem

Hack and slash at monsters galore in something new - a freemium game, not a lite or trial version - called Monster Mayhem. It's bloody, cartoonish and vibrant and it's something Chillingo hasn't done before - that is making a game free to play, but making advancement almost dependent on IAPs. Insane monsters are lurking in the dark and gamers playing as The Gate Keeper have to keep them out by any gory means available. It also has castle defence elements, but served up with humor. There are 20 monsters to kill and five distinct bosses to battle. Upgrading the arsenal is key to progress and that's where the IAPs come in, but they aren't necessary to buy in order to enjoy the game - there is no pay wall, just ways to advance quickly for a fee.

Jet Set Go

Jet Set Go is the biggest departure for Chillingo and the most intriguing. With the free game released last week and Chillingo and parent EA's increased used of incentives using its Crystal Network integrated with social network sites like Facebook and Twitter to unlock items in some newer titles, one can't help but wonder if they aren't thinking of moving into not just time management, but also the lucrative freemium market?

Jet Set Go, however, is a premium game with everything included for the one time purchase. The game is universal and only $.99. Nothing extra here to buy, and it's from the team that brought us classic iOS time management title Sally's Spa. Players help April build her new travel agency empire and fly customers around the globe. The game has five different types of time management  systems built in so there isn't much waiting around and there are a total of 12 locations from Montreal to Hong Kong, with 14 different types of customers, each with their own specifics likes and needs to learn. All these games look great but, we especially can't wait to give this one a try!

Happy Halloween From Chillingo

Posted by Chris Hall on October 26th, 2010

Not to be left out of the Halloween fun, Chillingo has a game coming out and a bunch of updates to get us into the Halloween spirit.

Zombie Party - I unfortunately don't speak German and can't accurately translate the official press release from Mobile Bits, but the Google translation leads me to think that Zombie Party is a four player party game for the iPad (and a number of other platforms) based on the Delta Engine. The game has four included minigames, Pinball, Tanks, Zombie Hockey & Brain Dart, all of which are able to be played with virtual controls in each of the corners of the iPad screen.

According to Mobile Bits, Zombie Party will be out before Halloween for 4.99 Euros ($6.99).


Minigore - In addition to Game Center scoring, some graphics updates, and a new mode called Inferno, Minigore is adding "undead Jane" to the roster of characters for some Halloween fun.

Monster Mayhem - Monster mayhem is adding Zombie Pumpkins to the "goriest, bloodiest, hack-and-slash monster game you've ever seen". It's also 50% off for the month of Halloween, so pick it up while it's cheap.

Pro Zombie Soccer Lite - Not really an update, but the new lite version of Pro Zombie Soccer lets players brutalize the walking dead for the price of nothing.

Vampire Origins: RELOADED - Vampire Origins is adding a new survival mode to the game, as well as a new gyroscopic gun range that has you playing the game through Vincent's eyes. LIke Monster Mayhem, the game is also on sale for 99 cents for a limited time.

Zombie Wonderland - This new update adds good and bad ghosts that appear when the zombies that get shot (like zombies have souls... psh). Also included are tornadoes that blow zombies away and zombie termites that can eat through boarded windows.

Zombie Party and the rest of the updates will be out in the days leading up to Halloween. Check out the included screenshots of the Halloween updates after the jump. Enjoy!
